Cool postdoctoral opportunity in global health diagnostics from Professor David Issadore at University of Pennsylvania:
Hello FluidMEMS community,
For those of you who do not already know me, my name is Dave Issadore. I did my PhD at Harvard with Bob Westervelt (2009), did my post-doc with Ralph Weissleder at MGH (2009-2012), and am now at University of Pennsylvania as an Assistant Professor in Bioengineering and Electrical & Systems Engineering. I am searching for a talented, highly motivated engineer to join me as a post doc.
Our research focuses on developing new technologies for diagnosing disease. In this research area, microelectronics, microfluidics, and nanomaterials are integrated into miniaturized chip-based systems to detect molecular markers of disease. We have a strong collaboration with the Abramson Cancer Center on circulating tumor material detection and we have a strong collaboration with the Center For AIDS Research (CFAR) on TB detection in patients with HIV co-infections. Collaborations with a group in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa and a hospital in Botswana may require some travel.
